Welcome to Salem United Church of Christ
Living Out God's Love
We are an open and affirming congregation, and our mission is to witness to the word and work of Jesus so all people may know the welcome of God, worship with joy, grow as disciples, live as servants, and enjoy the strength of Christian fellowship.
Salem Weekly News for October 22, 2021
IN SEARCH OF OLD MAGAZINES....
The youth are doing a project on Sunday evening (10/24) that requires old magazines. Do you have any to donate? Please bring the to church Sunday morning and leave them outside Sarah Pundt's office.
Our sympathies and prayers go out to the family of Gladean Zurbuchen. She died earlier this week on October 18. There will be a visitation/viewing open to the public from 9:30 to noon at the Ryan Funeral Home next Wednesday (10/27). A private graveside service will follow.
Once again, due to Covid, the collection of donations and distribution of the baskets will be different than in years past. Most of the food for the baskets will be provided through Second Harvest at no cost to Badger Prairie Needs Network. Congregations are asked to make monetary donations to supplement the food received so clients can receive pies at Thanksgiving and fruit in their Christmas baskets. BPNN can purchase pies for $6.50 and fruit for $20. BPNN is anticipating providing 400 baskets to local families both for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Checks should be made out to Salem. Please note that the check is for a Thanksgiving basket. Checks can be placed in the collection plate or mailed to church by November 14.
Other items currently needed are aluminum roasting pans for the turkeys, sugar, flour and cooking oil. A donation bin is located in the fellowship hall for these additional items.
Thank you for your continued generous support of our neighbors in need.
